You can purchase an adapter "Parallel to USB" for printers to be used with printers.

What printer do I use to connect an Officejet d135


A printer does not connect to a hard drive.

Is the connector on the PC a Male (Parallel) or Female "D" (Serial) shaped connector?

Does the PC have a flat USB connector you can use?

If it does, then you should be able to purchase a cable that has an "End Point Connector" The "U" shaped block and the other end is the flat conector that is oon just about everthing.

Can I connect my HP laserjet 5p with a 25 pin connector to my laptop which only has USB connection


Hello,

On the back of the printer where the cable connects is actually a 36 pin connector, the end going to the computer is the 25pin end. What you will need to do is get a USB to parallel cable, they run $15-25, this will have the USB plug on one end and the 36pin centronix printer connection on the other end. This cable will allow your printer to be connected to the laptop. Office Depot and Staples should have the cable you need, if not you can do a google search for it and order one online.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I just installed my designer software onto a new computer that doesn't have a 25 pin printer cable, however, I bought a usb/25 pin cable and have the dongle attached...but the software says the dongle...


Your software still is looking for the 25 printer pin connection from the motherboard. I don't know computer set up from an engineering concept, but I do know that the usb connection you purchased doesn't work with that software. You'll need to either get the new software or a used computer with the printer port hook up.

Bios password reset for toshiba lap top


You need to build a hardware device that plugs into the printer port.

Get a 25 pin male D sub connector, and solder various wires
to the pins numbered below. The pins on the connector are numbered 1 to 25
For a picture of this hardware device (dongle) go to :-
http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpg

Connect these pins together by soldering thin insulated wires to the following pins :-
1-5-10,
2-11,
3-17,
4-12,
6-16,
7-13,
8-14,
9-15
Plug the dongle in the printer port and boot up the laptop, you will then be able to bypass the BIOS password and go into the BIOS to reset/remove the password.

Hook Up possible for EPSON Stylus 880 to new computer w/USB ?


There is no conversion cable that you can use with parallel connector since USB transfers data in Serial mode and the parallel cable handles data in Parallel mode.

Sorry.

Want to connect to my computer


What connector/interface does your PC has
9-pin or 25-pin connector

If it has 9-pin connector: use the following:
DB-9 RS-232 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If it has 25-pin connector: use the following:
DB-25 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If you are configuring the computer to use an RS-422A serial port, you need a special cable. Contact the computer or printer network manufacturer to see if an RS-422A cable is available. If no cable is available, contact your computer manufacturer for your computer pin assignments and have a cable constructed.

The default configuration for the serial port on the printer is for RS-232C serial communication. To set the printer to use RS-422A serial communication, change the control panel Serial Menu’s SERIAL setting to SERIAL=RS-422.
